Akademi Newsletter: February
From the Director’s desk
We begin 2018 with the world premiere tour of The Troth – Usne Kaha Tha, our new show that is a part of the UK-India Year of Culture. Director and Choreographer Gary Clarke and the team have worked exceptionally hard to bring this gripping and poignant story to life.
We have been astounded by its reception with full house performances at both Jaipur’s majestic Hawa Mahal Palace, and Dehli’s Kamani Auditorium. Many thanks to ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival and the Indian Council for Cultural Relations. The adventure continues as we travel to Bhopal, Jabalpur and Kurukshetra before bringing it back to the UK.
In London, our Dance Well and Reach Out and Reveal projects continue to flourish, making a real impact on people’s lives. Finally, we are hugely grateful to the Creative Industries Federation for inviting us to mark their third anniversary in such a spectacular way, with a special performance of Paradiso: Man’s Enduring Search for Perfection.
